East Lansing City Council Approves Taxi Authority

By Aaron Martinez

During Tuesday’s East Lansing City Council meeting, the assembly approved a municipal partnership agreement to create the Greater Lansing Taxi Authority. The partnership with the City of Lansing aims to create a single unified set of regulations to help protect both riders and drivers from the often inconsistent regulatory rules. The authority documents also create new regulations for ridesharing services, like the apps Uber and Lyft, which will allow these services continue to operate in the Lansing area as other cities have threatened to eliminate them. ┬áThis agreement came to be as the result of collaboration between East Lansing Mayor Nathan Triplett and Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero.

The partnership agreement must now be approved by the Lansing City Council, and city leaders in both Lansing and East Lansing are confident that the measure will pass when it comes up for a vote in the near future.
